Publisher's Summary

Every fall, hunting season in Sorenson, Wisconsin, leads to some accidental injuries. Deputy coroner Mattie Winston just hopes the hunters don't bring any more business to her office. But somebody seems to have declared open season on land developers. One real estate developer who's recently come to town has been found dead in the woods, with an arrow through his neck. Now it's up to Mattie to get to the bottom of the killing.

That might be easier if she wasn't also hunting for Detective Hurley's teenage daughter, Emily, who has suddenly disappeared. With a homicidal William Tell out on the loose, Mattie is desperate to find Emily before the killer notches another arrow.

    "I Love Mattie"

    This is one of my favorite series. Mattie is funny, intelligent and realistic. I love her relationship with Hurley and the other supporting characters. The mystery was well written and very clever. The worst thing about this book is that it's over and I have to wait for another book to be published.

    "Best Book of the Mattie Winston Series"

    This book explores several interesting topics. Dom's secret wish, mean girls, single mother turmol, the importance of commication and ferious love for family. Sounds vague and cheesy but i dont want to spoil anything. Good "road read" for family with teens.

    "I've really tried"

    I liked the first two books, but can't put my finger on why I haven't been able to finish the others. I think it's simply that I want more humor, which is a personal thing. The writing is pretty good, I like the characters mostly, and I learn a lot about forensics, but Maddie doesn't seem to enjoy herself ever since the first couple of books. It's all complain complain, as if she expected to get a gift card for having unprotected sex instead of another person.

    "Stiff Competition"

    Great story and well read. It has more than one mystery and the deeper you go the harder it gets. Heartwarming as well.

    "Typical Mattie"

    Once you get this far into a series like that it gets harder to accurately review the books. This book would not be interesting outside the context of the series, not useful as a stand alone story. I enjoyed it because I enjoy Mattie and Hurley and their friends. If you've read these books then you are used to the fact that there always has to be something interfering in their relationship. This time around it is Emily again. I was a bit disappointed by this since I thought we got over that last time, but I found the plots interesting and enjoyed the characters even if Mattie's immaturity occasionally gets on my nerves. Of course what fun would a perfect heroine be anyway? I already know I will get the next when it comes out.

    "An excellent listen"

    Ryan has furthered the development of several characters in this latest installment, as well as providing a multi-layered story. I also liked that the case was solved without an extended and detailed confession by the murderer at what appeared to be the moment of triumph - when the evidence or the hero(ine) would be rendered useless. Can't wait for the next book in the series!
